In 1874, Mother Mary Angela Truszkowska sent five Felician Sisters across the Atlantic to North America. On November 21, they arrived in Polonia, Wisconsin where the pastor of St. Joseph Parish, Fr. Joseph Dabrowski had requested their help educating the children of polish immigrants.
Their hard work, joyfulness and charism had a profound effect on people, and as women joined them, Felician Sisters’ ministries continued to grow across the U.S. and Canada, then in Haiti.
To commemorate their historic 150th anniversary, a year-long celebration is planned including a pilgrimage and opening Mass and celebration in Polonia, WI on November 21, 2024.
